Letter From the West.
Correspondence of the Western Palladium.
Citt of .Lancaster, Ohio.
Lancaster is about 125 miles from Cin
cinnati, by railroad. It is an old and re
spectable looking place, with sufficient ob
jects of interest lo well repay strnnger
for a visit. It contains many handsome
residences upon the elevated streets, among
these, is that of J idge Radebaugh of Cin
cinnati, where we were a guest.
Two miles from the city, is Mount
Pleasant, or Standing Stone, as it was call
ed by the Indians. To the western side,
this is a precipitous and jigged elevation,
about 250 feet from the level ground. Du
ring our SBcent up this height by a circuit
ous path among the forest trees, we were
told that tattle snakes are found here,
which information somewhat added to our
imnetusof locomotion, especially where
oar footsteps led into deep beds of soft
leaves, bv the sides of gigantic, fallen tr-e
trunks, or among the huge piles of rocks
whose dark fissures yawned on either side
with portentous significance. On the sur
face or some of these stones are marks, cut
by the Wyandots. and many an aut:grsph
inscription of visitors.
But we were well compensated for the
trouble ol ascending the difficult hiil, on
reaching its summit, which is a cleared
plateau of some extent, and from whioh.on

Among the notable personages whom
we met in thi- aily, was General George
Sanderson, a venerable man, who was in

was also nresent at Hull's surrender, where

several local anecdotes of the ex senator,

dividuals how to get there; among numer

hills like cracks in yellow loaf cakes, we
were told lo drive up and around, and
then to turn off to the 'Widow's Home,'
and then to inquire 'of almost anybody
who would tell us tho way to Lace Sem
inary.' Amid the falling rain, we drove
to the 'Widow s home and mee'.ing a way.
farer with a pleasint countenance, (doubt
less a widower on his return from a call at
the Widows Home,) our divine very re
ppectolily inquired t' e way. But the gal
lant man had never heard of such a place
as the one for whioh we were destined.
We then deemed it prudent to halt at a

voice of entreaty. Behold I he only looked
on us with solid indifference, but never a
word did he reply.
Very much 'cut,' yet in no wise disen

by us for the desired intelligence. Not
one word did we elicit from him also. He
joireed on and so did not we. We stop

of a house, now up, now down, through
gulches; passed three wild geese, which
looked on us as old acquaintances, and in

After winding around again and again,
wo came to the Line Seminary and the
residences of the piofessors!
Exhausted and dispirited with our ride
of three or four miles, we concluded not
to alight. So Mrs. D., who was formerly
tho belle of New Haven, came out and
welcomed us very gracefully, under an
umbrella.' We missed seeing the famous
library of the Seminnry; also 'Uncle Tom's
Cahin,' as it is called, which was the Home
of Harriet Beeoher Stowe, but is now the
residence of a celebrated publisher of Cin
cinnati; and very much else which we
would have taken pleasure in seeing. But
we considered ourselves abundantly fortu
nate to ever get there and return.
With better suoccss thsn the above, we
made a visit to Spring Grove Cemetery, on
one of the lovliBst days of this season, in

GRECIAN SCENERY. i '
Ths day of our departure augured a for
tunate journey. It had stormed on the
previous day, but now the azure pavement
of heaven shene new-washed in the beams
of the rising . sun, and all the sounds
and collors of Spring were fresh jo the
crystaline air. A cool wind blew from
the West, and every tint of tils' land
scape was retouohed and restored with the
loveliest effect. The elder-trees in the gar
dens had already put cn their Simmer
drets; the tall Giei-ian poplars stood in a
green mist ol blossoms; the willows drop
ed their first tresses of milky emerald, and
the pink petals of the almond flowers show
ered upon the earth. The plain of Aliira,
over which we rode, through the olive
grove of the Academy, was like a para
dise. The wheat wasalready high enough
lo ripple and shift its color in the wind,
and the vines, amnng which the peasants
were busily working, pruning the last
year's shoots and heaping the earth ' be
tween me rows, were, peginning to jm
forth their leaves. As we turned at the
cass of Danhne. lo take 4 farewell look at
Athens, I as more than, ever struck with
the unrivalled pssitioa. of the immortal
city. The Acropolis is the prominent ob
ject in every view, and the rock crested
Lycabettus, with its pvramidal front, har
moniously balances it on the north, both
being exquisitely relieved against the blue
oack ground of Hymeltus.
I nev r aw a more superb sea-color
(ban that of the Gulf of Salmis, as it shone
in the distance, between the pale pinkish
gray walls of ths pass. It was a dazzling
velvet blue green, covered with a purple
(loom, and shone with a semi-transparent
lustre, like that of a dark sapphire. Net
titer brush nor pen could represent it. The
scarlet anemones just opened, burned like
coals of fire by the roadside, with almonds
and hawthorns hid their crooked boughs
in a v-iil of blossoms, and (he lilly and as
phodel shot forth new leaves. It was a
day loaned from the tressury of heaven.
By ton o'clock we
had cl.mbed to the crest of the hills, and
the plain of Argos, crossed by long streaks
of golden morning light, lay below us.
On the right the mountains of Arcadia
rose in a ismpart of gliilering snow, with
the hills of Eryraanthus and the pyramid
al peak of Cyllene still further to the west.
Beyond the emerald pp.vement of the plain,
rose the Acropolis of Argos against the
purple line of the Argolio Gulf. The glo
rious landscape swam in a transparent va
por, still further softened its exquisite har
mony of color. The pink mountain head
lands, painted with the tenderest sir -akings
of silvery-gray shadow, had a play of light
like that upon folded silk, and the whole
scene was clear and luminous in tone, as if
painted upon glass. It is difficult to pic
ture in words the pure, aerial delicacy and
loveliness of coloring which tinted the Ar
rive world below us and I have not the
magio pencil of Turner, who alone could
have caught its transitory splendor.

1'rora the Mlncsollan of the 811th.
The warfare was conducted in regular
Indian style a running fight amongst the
trees aid logs, and grass, interspersed with
a few band to band conflicts with toma
hawk and war clubs. When a Sioux
would fall, he Was immediately ctrruri to
the rear, and tlen taken across on the fer
ry boat. Several who were severely
wounded were taken to tho rear, Lot as
scon as they lecovered a litllo, would rush
hack into the the thickest of Ihe fight.
The Sicux are said to have acted wiih the
greatest bravery during the whole battle,
charging upon and following the enemy
with a perfect deserpanon. When ever
a Chippewa would fail, his head was im
mediately cut off and carried to the rear.
Four ghastly heads were thus taken over
the river, and exhibited with great exu.ta
lion by the fquaws, who weie busy all the
time carrying ammunition, (which is said
was furnished hy the citizens to them free
of charge) and encouraging their warriors.
Later in the day some headles bodies
tho Chippewas were brought over and ll
squaws hacked them (o peices, and finally
kindled a fire under one of them, and
burnt it np! TLis last sickening spectacle
of barbrrity is said, by those whrwitnessed
it to have been haild with fiendish exulta

About ten o'clock the Cnippewas drew
off, and tha whole forec retreated over the
bluffs, in the direction of Lake Minnetot k
leaving four of their warriers behind them,
one ol which fiom the decorations on the
scalp is supposed .to lie a distinguished
cheif. As they passed a certain point on

some accounts any eight, wounded braves
on litters, besides those wounded who
were able to walk, some of whom seemed
to be badly hurt. The Sioux then return

loss, when il was found that two was kill

essibli Bridal The Easton (Pa.)
Times gjves an account of the bridal fes
tivities attendant upon the marriage of a
daughter of Governor R.-eder, in which
he festivities lasted for a number of days,
in a series of entertainments given !y the
relations of the bride and her friends. Up
on this departure from the loo fashionable
mode of getting married and then leaving
in the first train the Times says:

course lost. Now, suppose we put the
cost of plowing at 32.00 per acre, we have,
the sum of 8172.000 and over. But when
we take into consideration the land which
has been washed away, the fences which
have been swept off. dec, the loss will not
fall short of 400,003 dollar. Portsmouth
